Does the laptop have Fn keys for changing the display brightness and
turning the external output on/off? Do they make any difference for the
blank screen?

You could try "modprobe -v radeonfb". (As far as I can tell, this module
does not support your card, so this is a rather long shot.)

Did you ever try using the "radeonhd" driver for xorg?

Other than that, some of the more general suggestions that I just posted
in response to Ed's last mail might be worth trying (e.g. vesa driver,
newer kernel from backports).
